New photos have been added to the Life, 2016 album.

  • Events
    • Did an all-day coding exercise to interview for my new job on F 11/4.

    • Did my annual fall cleaning on S 11/5, then tried to get takeout from Pattaya Thai, only to learn that they had closed (probably for being too slow to fill orders). Ate food from Thai Thai instead.

    • Had dinner at Jackson's on S 11/6 to celebrate the end of Rebecca's weekend-long PT class, then bought stupid trinkets at Paper Source, which is the weirdest store ever to have employees work on commission.

    • Rebecca taught her first real yoga class at Sportrock on M 11/7.

    • I accepted an offer to work at a new company on the same day that Trump was elected President. T 11/8 CONSPIRACY THEORY.

    • Joined Rebecca and her friends in a practice yoga session on F 11/11.

    • Did raking #1 of 3 and destroyed the tomato plants for the winter on S 11/12, then had dinner with Michelle at Chuy's.

    • Had a book club where we discussed the first half of a sci-fi book called Hyperion on S 11/13.

    • Had 6 adults, 1 teen, and 4 kids over for Friendsgiving #1 of 1 on S 11/19.

    • Had my last day at work on M 11/21.

    • Had Thanksgiving with both sets of parents on H 11/24.

    • Spent Thanksgiving weekend taking care of Rebecca with a sore throat, then caught said sore throat.

    • Installed a cat door in the basement on S 11/26 while Rebecca visited her family in Hagerstown.

    • Started my new job on M 11/28.

  • Projects
    • Printed out scores and parts for One for Rosie, and Bubba's Fried Chicken Stand, both of which Peebs wants to try playing with his high school jazz band.

    • Crash coursed through the latest Java EE specifications which apparently don't suck like they did in 2006 anymore.

  • Consumerism
    • Still loving Overwatch (Level 412 with 421 hours and a 50.5% win ratio). Got Rise of the Tomb Raider and will eventually get around to enjoying it too.

    • Enjoyed watching seasons of Silicon Valley and Lovesick, and currently enjoying The 100, Season Three.

November's Final Grade: B, Lots of changes in the works, but too soon to judge their effects.
